Throughout the healthcare sector, mobile devices are now being used to assist clinicians and enhance patient care. Multicharge provide great space-saving solutions to keep your devices secure and fully charged.
Mobile devices such as iPads are increasingly being deployed by the NHS and private healthcare providers as a replacement for traditional pen and paper. More compact than a computer, more manageable than a stack of folders, tablets enable medical staff to collate patient information quickly and easily.
With this uptake in tablet use comes a growing need for healthcare IT managers to identify the best solution for managing devices in bulk. That means charging, updating and storing them all safely. In the medical sector, patient confidentiality is always paramount and demands a secure storage solution. With a strong line-up of secure tablet charging products, Multicharge have this covered.
Our trolley range can be based in nurses stations and ward receptions where easy access is required. They can also be wheeled from room to room, enabling medical staff to distribute and collect devices easily. They can be utilised in other settings too such as GP surgeries, medical centres and nursing or residential care homes.
Tablet charging cabinets from Multicharge are well-suited to compact spaces where they can be mounted to a wall or placed on a desk. Providing a fixed point of access for multiple tablets and USB devices, charging cabinets are streamlined, very simple to use and easy to clean, helping to minimise the risk of infection.
Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust had been using mobile technology for some time, but with minimal tablets in use, managers decided to embark on an ambitious digital project to introduce 200+ devices throughout their network of hospitals and clinics. With all devices requiring regular charging and storage, they approached Multicharge for a solution.
We held several meetings with hospital management and staff in which we listened carefully to their requirements, asking the kind of questions that may not have seemed important at the outset but which we knew would prove so over time. Devices were to be used by medical staff mostly in nurses stations. As well as keeping devices secure, the units also needed to be capable of being cleaned by medical cleaning products. The size of units was also paramount as was a quick turnaround warranty in the unlikely event of a breakdown.
It was decided that a combination of tablet charging trolleys and cabinets would best meet the hospital trust's particular needs. This would provide them with a combination of compact and portable solutions for different areas of the hospitals. As a company capable of bespoke services, we tailored the units to their requirements, working with them to get the design just right.
Trust managers needed a company with a solid background of reliability and flexibility, and Multicharge were able to fulfil all their requirements with ease. Upon receiving the products, hospital staff were delighted to be able to charge and store their mobile devices safely and conveniently in bulk, freeing up valuable wall sockets.
